It's "comedy tonight" in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud, six-time Tony-winning musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Travel to ancient Rome and experience the zany antics of Pseudolus, a slave on a quest for freedom. This slapstick musical sings and dances its way through mistaken identities, a house full of courtesans and an elaborate web of lies that all lead to an uproarious night in the theater. Sondheim and comic writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) seamlessly combine situations from the timeless comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the fast-paced, slapstick energy of classic vaudeville to create a nonstop entertainment extravaganza.

I thought that the show was excellent although I would have liked it to be little longer.

I just read the other review. Yes, it's true that some of the jokes were
old and her singing does need some help (or just not sing) - but
overall she was so full of energy, was delightful and fun - that the other just doesn't seem that important.
Quotes & Highlights
Watch “Mama” call out homeless guy Ted Williams on AOL Video.
Emmy Award-winning comedian Vicki Lawrence is one of the most beloved television personalities of her generation. Plucked out of total obscurity as a high school senior, Vicki went on to become part of the now-legendary cast of the Carol Burnett Show. “I went to the Harvard School of Comedy in front of America,” says Ms. Lawrence of her Burnett Show training.
In the seventh season, and hundreds of hilarious sketches later, at the ripe, old age of 24, Vicki created her most endearing character to date, Thelma Harper, or “Mama” as she is better known to her fans. After the Burnett Show, Vicki went on to star in Mama’s Family, which consistently topped the ratings for its entire six-year run of original shows. “Mama” has attained almost a cult status among her legions of loyal television viewers, who still enjoy her in reruns twice daily throughout most of the country.
